Ofsted’s grading system
Ofsted grades childminders by using a four-tier scale based on the following points:
- Helping the children to be healthy.
- Protecting the children from harm or neglect and helping them to stay safe.
- Helping the children to enjoy and achieve.
- Encouraging the children to make a positive contribution to their provision and the wider community.
